Chocolate Caramel Cookies
30-36 cookies *I actually got 42*
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
30-36 chocolate-covered caramel candies (like Rolo's)
2 tablespoons sugar (for rolling)

Directions
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees Farenheit
- In a large mixing bowl (or the bowl of your electric mixer) add sugar, brown sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla and mix until well blended
- Add flour, cocoa and baking soda and mix well
- Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes
- Roll dough into 1" balls and place 1 chocolate-covered caramel candy in the center of each dough ball, then form the dough ball around the majority of the candy
- Roll each dough ball in sugar and place on an ungreased cookie sheet
- Bake for 7-10 minutes
- Let cook on pan for 1 minute, then remove to a cooling rack
